contrasting hymn versions…

Guide me oh thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim through this barren land,
I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold me in Thy powerful hand.

Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven,
Feed me till I want no more,
Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven,
Feed me till I want no more. 

When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Sail me through the swelling current,
And land me safe on Canaan’s side.

Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee.
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee.

Wele’n sefyll rhwng y myrtwydd
Wrthddrych teilwng o fy mryd
Er o’r braidd ‘rwy’n Ei adnabod
Ef uwchlaw gwrthrychau’r byd
Henffych fore!
Caf ei weled fel y mae.
Caf ei weled fel y mae.

Rhosyn Saron yw Ei enw
Gwyn a gwridog, hardd Ei bryd!
Ar ddeng mil y mae’n rhagori
O wrthddrychau penna’r byd
Ffrind pechadur!
Dyma’r llywydd ar y mor.
Dyma’r llywydd ar y mor.

Beth sydd imi mwy a wnelwyf
Ag eilunod gwael y llawr?
Tystio ‘r wyf nad yw eu cwmni
I’w gymharu a’m Iesu Mawr.
O! am aros
Yn Ei gariad ddyddiau f’oes.
Yn Ei gariad ddyddiau f’oes.

Added English lyric in the middle verse…

Open now the crystal fountain
Whence the healing waters flow
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through

Strong Deliv’rer, Strong Deliv’rer
Be Thou still my strength and shield
Be Thou still my strength and shield.
